We have a requirement to display most recent uploaded file in a document repository in a separate view on the home page.

For example we have Document_Library_1 with files file_new, file_old1, file_old2... we need to have a custom custom view or dashboard on homepage, where the user can access the most recent reports.

Could someone please point me in the right direction on how to achieve this, is custom webpart a solution or the standard view could be customized?


If you have a folder structure in your library, don't forget to tick this option in your view settings, otherwise you won't get the latest files in a folder:

You can create a View on your Document Library. In the Library click in the top ribbon on Create a View.

Change the sort by Modified Date / Created Date depending on what you want to achieve.

Then change the sort order for ascending or descending. In the end, go back on your HomePage and add a new WebPart using the Document Library.

Change the View from default to the View you have just created. This should do the trick.

Hope this helps ;)
